3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 22-08-2011, from K Supermarket Kamppi) The beer poured deep amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was small, white and sparse. Aroma had malts, pine needles and tangerine in aroma. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hops, nuttiness, pine, white bread and bitterness. Aftertaste was bready and bitter. This beer was easy to drink and quite ok. The bread like flavours were a bit off-putting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml (K-Kamppi, BB 08/2011)
Deep amber color, small white head, some lace. Quite weak aroma is sweetish fruity, slightly citrusy and a bit grainy. Light to medium bodied. Front is quite watery, then has some hoppy bitterness, but especially malty flavors. Light lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Hops are much less dominating in this one than in Amarillo or Simcoe version (which I had on draught).
